Hillary Clinton is questioned by the FBI about her use of personal

The US Presidential contender says she's done nothing wrong.

The FBI's deciding whether Mrs Clinton mishandled

Bangladesh's Prime Minister says the country will stand up

:00:23.:00:29.

to terror, after 20 people - most of them foreigners -

:00:30.:00:32.

The way they carried out the killings cannot be tolerated. It

:00:33.:00:47.

shows signs of extreme hatred and anger and killing sprees flowing

:00:48.:00:48.

through them. With more than three-quarters

:00:49.:00:49.

of the votes counted in Australia's general election,

:00:50.:00:52.

latest projections suggest that none of the parties will win

:00:53.:00:54.

an outright majority. In a huge upset at Wimbledon,

:00:55.:00:56.

the American Sam Query knocks out the defending champion

:00:57.:00:59.

Novak Djokovic in the third round. Hillary Clinton has been questioned

:01:00.:01:18.

by the FBI about her use of personal emails while she was US

:01:19.:01:22.

Secretary of State. A spokesman for the presumptive

:01:23.:01:26.

Democratic presidential candidate said she gave the

:01:27.:01:28.

interview voluntarily. The Bureau is investigating

:01:29.:01:32.

whether Mrs Clinton, her aides or anyone else broke

:01:33.:01:34.

the law by setting up a private server for her use during the time

:01:35.:01:37.

she was at the State Department. We can speak to her now. What is

:01:38.:01:53.

likely to come out of this interview? Will discontinue

:01:54.:01:58.

throughout the presidential campaign? We are unclear as to where

:01:59.:02:09.

the FBI are in their investigations. Perhaps this is the final interview

:02:10.:02:14.

in the process. We have not heard from the FBI if it is. She was

:02:15.:02:20.

questioned for three and a half hours over the years of her private

:02:21.:02:23.

e-mail account while she was Secretary of State. She had to

:02:24.:02:28.

e-mail accounts, one on her or e-mail server and one on her work

:02:29.:02:36.

account. The work account was protected, but a whole account was

:02:37.:02:42.

not. She has said that she wishes she had done things differently. She

:02:43.:02:47.

apologised for the way it has been handled. She says and continues to

:02:48.:02:57.

say that she has done nothing wrong. Legal experts believe that perhaps

:02:58.:03:03.

charges in this case are unlikely, they are possible but legal experts

:03:04.:03:08.

say they are unlikely. What is likely is the political fallout from

:03:09.:03:13.

this. Republican opponents have already said that the crew she is

:03:14.:03:19.

untrustworthy. Donald Trump has stood up and said, she is crooked,

:03:20.:03:25.

look at how is she has used her e-mails. When it comes to the

:03:26.:03:32.

political fallout, that is where perhaps Hillary Clinton will wish

:03:33.:03:37.

you can put this behind her. You told us about the political

:03:38.:03:41.

perception, but what are the public perceptions? Does this play into the

:03:42.:03:47.

their perception of her, that she is not trustworthy? One of the first

:03:48.:03:56.

Democratic debates, Bernie Sanders stood up and said he was sick of

:03:57.:04:00.

talking about her e-mails and tried to draw a line under it. But they

:04:01.:04:06.

will play into a's hands. They have had time to drip feed the public

:04:07.:04:14.

with this kind of image of her being untrustworthy. Was this a

:04:15.:04:21.

misjudgement on her part? They say at the worst cheapo classified

:04:22.:04:25.

information at risk. It does not do her favours. Especially when she

:04:26.:04:29.

becomes the Democratic nominee. The Bangladeshi Prime Minister has

:04:30.:04:34.

pleaded with Islamic extremists to stop killing in the name

:04:35.:04:36.

of religion, after 20 people, including nine Italians,

rescued, but many others Foreigners were isolated

politics and Political Islam. Thank you for joining us. I want to

:15:30.:15:45.

ask you about the government's reaction to this latest attack,

:15:46.:15:50.

because in the past be specific attacks by Islamic militants the

:15:51.:15:54.

government has accused the opposition rather than admitting

:15:55.:15:58.

there are elements in Bangladeshi society that need to be examined.

:15:59.:16:02.

Has the government changed its response? I have not seen that. The

:16:03.:16:09.

Prime Minister's speech does not reflect that. An attack of this

:16:10.:16:19.

magnitude needs to change the government and society itself. I

:16:20.:16:29.

hope there will be a re-examination of the situation have to this

:16:30.:16:38.

attack, a welcome or donated attack. It has the hallmarks of

:16:39.:16:43.

international terrorism. Why do you think the police has been

:16:44.:16:47.

unsuccessful in arresting the people you might be planning these kind of

:16:48.:16:52.

attacks? In most cases there are two elements. Firstly there is a

:16:53.:17:00.

capacity issue with the Bangladeshi priest is not have the capacity to

:17:01.:17:05.

deal with this. -- the Bangladeshi police. The second element is the

:17:06.:17:14.

political will and direction. If it is coming from the government, from

:17:15.:17:25.

the ruling party, that it is time to change something, it becomes

:17:26.:17:30.

difficult for the police to pursue a proper investigation. They should

:17:31.:17:44.

have been brought to justice. It should not be different whether they

:17:45.:17:50.

are political opposition or not. Those who have committed crimes

:17:51.:17:56.

should be apprehended and put to trial, but that has not happened

:17:57.:17:59.

shoes to the absence of the political will. -- this has not

:18:00.:18:04.

happened because of the absence of political will. Have you noticed any

:18:05.:18:10.

shift in Bangladeshi culture that might be encouraging these attacks?

:18:11.:18:18.

I travelled to Bangladesh recently and I'm from there. There have been

:18:19.:18:26.

changes to the Society for decades. If you look at the rhetoric you see

:18:27.:18:31.

there have been changes. These changes are not limited to one

:18:32.:18:36.

segment of society. If you look at the attackers, they have come from

:18:37.:18:47.

an upper middle-class background. The shift has been happening beneath

:18:48.:18:51.

the surface for a long time. Despite these changes, the positive elements

:18:52.:19:02.

is that there is still resistance and aspirations and an inclusive

:19:03.:19:20.

Bangladesh. I am sorry, we could speak all day, but thank you for

:19:21.:19:24.

your insights. We'll have news of that huge upset

:19:25.:19:27.

at Wimbedon shortly - but let's start with football,

:19:28.:19:32.

and third quarterfinal at Euro 2016. Germany are playing

:19:33.:19:34.

Italy and they're into Not a classic this one so far,

:19:35.:19:50.

between the two heavyweights. They are just approaching the end of the

:19:51.:19:51.

first hour. The winners will face France

:19:52.:19:54.

or Iceland in the semi-finals. We'll have news of the latest

:19:55.:20:00.

quarterfinal at Euro 2016 shortly - but let's start with the shock news

:20:01.:20:03.

from Wimbledon where The world number one was beaten

:20:04.:20:06.

in four sets by the American Sam Querrey as their third round match

:20:07.:20:10.

went into a second day - The world number one doesn't follow

:20:11.:20:19.

many, both Sam has this privilege. Novak Djokovic was two sets down

:20:20.:20:24.

when he was saved by the rain. Today was a fresh start and Novak Djokovic

:20:25.:20:27.

knew what was needed and wasted no time doing it. We have learnt to

:20:28.:20:33.

keep one eye on the sky above Wimbledon and it was not long before

:20:34.:20:38.

the rain came back. He stop and start nature of proceedings seemed

:20:39.:20:44.

to help Sam regain some impetus, but under the eye of Boris Becker Novak

:20:45.:20:48.

Djokovic got back into the game. A builder weather would still play its

:20:49.:20:53.

part, Novak Djokovic kept us guessing. He was lucky here and he

:20:54.:21:03.

knew it. Time to pull out his best. When he went to break up in the

:21:04.:21:07.

fourth set it seemed we would be heading for a decider. But Sam does

:21:08.:21:12.

not follow the script and a break back put him in front until the

:21:13.:21:18.

toughest opponents of all reminded everyone who was in charge. A chance

:21:19.:21:25.

for Novak Djokovic to reorganise. He then held a server and Sam seemed

:21:26.:21:26.

lose his nerve. The start of the lose his nerve. The start of the

:21:27.:21:31.

tie-breaker look like you would not go his way, but as you seem to read

:21:32.:21:34.

this match, Sam did not believe he was beaten. The defending champion,

:21:35.:21:47.

the winner of the last four grand titles, is out. It is incredible to

:21:48.:21:55.

do it here add Wimbledon, the biggest tournament in the world. I

:21:56.:22:00.

am so happy and that is it. I played the break point surely well. Every

:22:01.:22:05.

time I had a break point I was unable to manage a big serve and I

:22:06.:22:09.

fought the tie-breaker and got some errors and that was it. He is so

:22:10.:22:18.

amazing, arguably one of the best, so you know he was mentally tough.

:22:19.:22:24.

How far can you go and Wimbledon? I am taking it one run at a time. I am

:22:25.:22:33.

happy with this right now and I will look forward to the next round.

:22:34.:22:36.

There were no such problems for Andy Murray.

:22:37.:22:38.

The number two seed is through to the fourth

:22:39.:22:40.

round after a straight sets win over the Australian John Millman.

:22:41.:22:43.

There was a big upset in the Women's Singles, too.

:22:44.:22:46.

The number ten seed and former champion Petra Kvitova is out.

:22:47.:22:48.

She lost in straight sets to Ekaterina Makarova.

Lewis Hamilton has claimed pole position for tomorrow's

but he was given a five-place grid penalty, so he'll

There was a penalty, also, for Sebastian Vettel -

The actress and actor Caroline has died at the age of 52. Best known

:23:14.:23:36.

for her character as Mrs Merton, she revealed two years ago she had lung

:23:37.:23:40.

cancer. Our correspondent looks back at her career.

:23:41.:23:52.

What first, Debbie, attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?

:23:53.:23:56.

Behind the perm lay a sharp comic brain.

:23:57.:23:59.

Mrs Merton had started out as a spoof agony aunt

:24:00.:24:01.

on the radio in Manchester - the TV chatshow made

:24:02.:24:03.

I once saw David Copperfield and he made the Statue

:24:04.:24:07.

I have seen your Paul do the same thing with the 8 of clubs.

:24:08.:24:36.

And 20 years on, the success of Gogglebox owed much

:24:37.:24:38.

BBC Two showed us some penguins having a rough time in Patagonia.

:24:39.:24:42.

She'd started out performing on the Manchester comedy circuits.

:24:43.:24:44.

If on Earth, you are ugly, in Heaven, you will be beautiful,

:24:45.:24:47.

so it's great news for that girl there in the front.

:24:48.:24:50.

Her character comedy was perfect for The Fast Show.

:24:51.:24:52.

She won awards, but behind it all were many troubles.

:24:53.:24:54.

She struggled with fame and had a lifelong battle with cancer.

:24:55.:24:58.

My brother and I were born with cancer of the eyes, the retina.

:24:59.:25:01.

And my mum told us only special people get cancer.

:25:02.:25:03.

I must be very special, because I've had it in my lungs

:25:04.:25:06.

How many times have you seen me ringing anyone?

:25:07.:25:13.

Her masterpeiece, though, was The Royle Family.

:25:14.:25:17.

That's all I wanted, was it to be like Nigella's.

:25:18.:25:21.

Affectionate, funny and often moving.

:25:22.:25:33.

Sue Johnston, who played her mum, said she was devastated,

:25:34.:25:36.

She asked me to promise her that her
